Lake chapala Jewish Congregation
Lake Chapala, Jalisco, México
No matter where you are from, when you visit our synagogue, you immediately feel sense of fellowship by sharing the Jewish holidays with us. Our members span a range of Jewish practice from Conservative to Reform, Feminist and Reconstructionist. Regardless of where you are on the Jewish spectrum, sharing the holidays will make you feel connected and centered. Depending on the holiday, we can be solemn or silly and always lively. Join us in celebrating holidays and festivals and especially Shabbat!
Many of us here are retired. We finally have time to do things that we never got around to when we were working and raising families. Jewish Education falls into this category. The “People of the Book” here at LCJC offer study and discussion groups in Torah and Prophets often led by Baruch Rand and other wise resource people in our congregation. Come share in our learning processes…or teach us!
